Acacia Gold Lace Standard

Graftmasters®

Is a prostrate form of Acacia cardiophylla and has fine fern-like grey-green foliage with masses of gold flowers in Winter. Makes an ideal feature plant for garden beds or in large tubs on deck or courtyards. Will grow to 1.5m high by 1.5m wide and prefers a full sun to semi shade position in well-drained soil. May be fertilised with a low phosphorus slow release fertiliser after flowering. May be shaped by pruning back long flowering branches and removing crowded and crossing stems in the centre of the standard. By cutting back to an outside bud one can encourage a broader umbrella shape with increased flowering in subsequent years. Remove any foliage sprouting on the stem below the graft as soon as it is noticed. Gold Lace does not produce viable seed so does not pose any environmental weed risk like seedling trees.
